Pillowz and I just watched the last of the three - had never seen any of them before.
Depressing as hell, perhaps a bit melodramatic in spots, but also beautifully shot, well-acted, and, can't fault the soundtrack (Ravi Shankar in what was his first international success).
Any fans? I think they're a permanent fixture on the Criterion Channel if anyone's as curious as I was.
..and why not?

I got into Ray only a few years ago and have been kicking myself for not watching all his stuff sooner. Yes, this is a dazzling threesome and I’m so happy you enjoyed it! (Even the sad stuff)
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

One of the most auspicious debuts in film history. Satyajit Ray financed them himself. Put India on the map.
